My name is Matthew Lindsay and I'm reseaching the "CREWS" Families of Crewsville, Wauchula in Hardee Co., Florida and the Arcadia, Nocatee area in DeSoto County, Florida.
The earliest Crews I have was actually born in Crewsville, FL.
1. JOHN BYRON1 CREWS was born December 27, 1875 in Crewsville, Manatee Co., Florida,, and died September 26, 1948 in Arcadia, DeSoto Co., Florida. He married LELLIVE OLA BOYD December 12, 1897 in Arcadia, DeSoto Co., Florida. She died May 29, 1945 in Hardee Co., Florida.

Child of JOHN CREWS and LELLIVE BOYD is:
2. i. BYRON WALTON2 CREWS, b. February 12, 1899, Arcadia (DeSoto County), Florida; d. June 14, 1966, Joshua Creek Cemetery (DeSoto Co., FL.).
2. BYRON WALTON2 CREWS (JOHN BYRON1) was born February 12, 1899 in Arcadia (DeSoto County), Florida, and died June 14, 1966 in Joshua Creek Cemetery (DeSoto Co., FL.). He married HELEN HAZEL LINDSAY January 24, 1925 in Little Rock (Pulaski Co.), Arkansas, daughter of RICHARD LINDSAY and SARAH LACKEY. She was born February 09, 1908 in Mounds (Pulaski County), Illinois, and died May 30, 1974 in Sarasota (Sarasota County), Florida.
My connection to the CREWS family is through my father's aunt Helen Lindsay who married Byron Walton "Fred" CREWS. I've met some of their children which are many. They had 13 in all. They are my father, Jessie James Lindsay, Jr's. first cousins. Some are scattered throughout the state and some even in other states like Oklahoma.
Do you have a connection to any of the "Crews" family I've mentioned? If you don't does someone else know?
I've been wondering what my fathers, Uncle "Fred" Crews was doing in Little Rock, Arkansas when he met Helen Lindsay?
My great grandfather, Richard Mack Lindsay lived in Cairo, Illinois before moving to Little Rock, Arkansas. While he was in Cairo, he had worked for the Illinois Central Railroad as a car inspector. They moved to Little Rock, Arkansas between, 1908 and 1914, where my grandfather, Jessie James Lindsay, Sr. was born. They all had come to live in DeSoto Co., Florida between 1925 and 1926.
Thank for your time!
